The University of Hertfordshire brings the transformational impact of higher education to all.
With its heritage in Britain’s pioneering aeronautical industry, the University has been an innovative force in education since the early 1950s. Today, it hosts a thriving community of more than 25,000 students who study 550 degree options at a vibrant, inclusive, campus-based institution. Alongside high quality teaching, the University’s strong relationships with industry and award-winning careers services ensure students gain the knowledge and skills they need to match their ambition and succeed.
Academics are experts in their field, delivering research which is having a meaningful social and environmental impact in the UK and across the globe. From safe guarding older people’s food security and public health, to using a pioneering laser facility to deliver critical insights into climate, staff drive forward cutting-edge research.
The University of Hertfordshire has been an anchor institution for the regional economy and community since its beginning. Through its all-campus incubator ethos and status as a Enterprise Zone, the University gives hundreds of local businesses the support and facilities they need to learn and grow each year.
Globally, the University partners with institutions in countries all over the world, as well as welcoming 4,000 students from over 100 countries to its campus in the UK. Home students are also encouraged to take the opportunity to experience studying abroad at one of over 170 universities worldwide.
At the University of Hertfordshire students, staff and businesses consistently reach their full potential. They continue to think bigger, stand out and positively impact local, national and international communities.
We are a forward-looking, modern university with a proud tradition as a provider of high quality education and a focus on applied research. Our students benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in all academic disciplines including health, design and engineering laboratories, performing arts studios and computing centres.
We have been chosen to host three national Centres of Excellence in Teaching and Learning which has enabled us to invest substantial sums of money in health, design and mathematics. Our city-centre campus is continually developing and evolving, and we have plans for further investment in it over the next few years.
We are a major presence in Coventry, which contributes to the city’s friendly and vibrant atmosphere and also enables us to foster successful business partnerships. Through our links with leading edge businesses and organisations in the public and voluntary sectors, our students are able to access project and placement opportunities that enhance their employability on graduation.
